Masterclass 1: Benefit Realization
Abstract
“The best-laid strategies of any organization are useless without proper implementation”, (The Economist Intelligence Unit, 2013).  In today’s complex world, management in both the private and public sector is increasingly concerned by the wide gap between formulating their strategy and the ability to execute on it.  The gap results in missed opportunities and ultimately business failures.
Today’s successful organization must be able to identify new objectives and effectively implement change toward achieving those objectives.  Evidence-led benefits realization lays the cornerstone for this competency.

There are two key elements to consider in benefits management.  The first is the “front end”; what are the benefits, and how does this influence the business case and investment process? However, equally important is the confirming feedback; did we make a good investment as “evidenced” by achieving our intended benefits? It is that last stage, the follow up to confirming the business case, that usually gets lost in the rush to move on to other projects. With a structured benefits realization life cycle, this step is a formal part of the process, including adjustments if the desired results are not initially realized. Therefore, the probability that objectives are met, within acceptable portfolio performance thresholds, increases for organizations who adopt Benefits Realization.

Objectives
Explain the relationships between portfolio, project, and benefits management and successful investments.
Clarify the key roles for the stages in investment analysis, enabling changes, and ‘booking the benefits”.
Discuss and review key aspects of tracking and reporting benefits to ensure successful results
Recognize how to optimize your investments in strategic organizational changes.
 
Who Should Attend 
Intermediate / advanced PMs and BAs, those making investment decisions in project selection and funding, change directors.
